Based on extensive experience in MTB racing, ASAMA has developed this new frame for the riders that are looking for performance at low cost. Thanks to the 2-1-1 and G Control technology, there is no compromise to make between good climbing and stable descending. It's a weapon on any trail.

If you need a versatile off-road bike for training, exploring and racing, that bike is the one you need.

With its optimized geometry, you will be surprised how easy mountain biking became. You will be surprised how the challenging sections of your favorite trail just became a simple formality on this bike.

Built around 27.5 wheels, which are regarded as the most versatile wheel diameter at the moment, the frame is made out of hydro-formed AL6T6 aluminum alloy tubes. It's Asama's strongest frame, being able to withstand 2 times the ISO safety requirement for MTB bicycle qualification. Equipped with Shimano Tourney 21-speed groupset and aluminum quality components, you won't be worried that the bike let you down during your ride.

For the off-road riders that sweat up technical trails and fly down the mountains over rocks, gaps and roots. They are hardtail and full suspension mountain bikes able to bring you on the wildest trails and enter MTB racing. You will find bikes for cross-country, all-mountain and enduro application in the Full suspension and MTB category.

AL6T6: The aluminum alloy used in our frame is top quality imported grade, used by the most famous international brands. The durability of the material highly relies on a good heat treatment process. We believe that our in house equipment and experience with T6 treatment guaranty the best frame strength.

HYDROTUBE: Weight reduction and Strength gain at the same time. It's possible thanks to this technology. After mechanical simulation, we can define accurately which area need to be reinforced and which area can be made lighter. Thanks to Hydrotube we can optimize our frames by forming the frame tubes as simulated, adjusting point by point tube thickness and shapes.

2-1-1: A good bicycle needs to be comfortable and efficient. For that, the frame needs to be vertically compliant (filter shocks) but stiff laterally. By increasing the length of the 2 seat stays and welding them far apart from each other directly on the top tube, we improve the vertical flex while increasing the lateral rigidity.

INTERNAL ROUTING: The brakes and/or derailleur cables are routed internally in the frame. It makes for a cleaner, smoother look, protect the cables from external factors such as water or dirt and avoid to get tangled during transportation or off road riding. Better look and better shifting and braking on the long term.

OVERSIZE BB: The bottom bracket is where most of the pedaling forces are applied. By designing it oversize (73mm) we increase the bearing durability and power transfer to the bicycle.

SAFETY INSERT: The rear mesh hanger is designed separately from the frame. It acts as a fuse in case of accident protecting your frame integrity.

STAND READY: Our frames are designed with an integrated kickstand mount. Forget the clamps scratching the paint and bending your precious frame. Either you use the kickstand or not the mount is strong, tidy and compatible with most manufacturers.

G-CONTROL: Strong of more than 15 years of experience in mountain bike racing, our designers have come with their own optimized bike geometry. By analyzing rider position and specially the rider center of gravity, our team has been able to define the best geometry for each type of usage. Either it is Relax, Sport or Performance. That's why you will feel immediately at ease on Asama bikes that follow this model. The general benefits are: More space on the bike, stable feel, predictable steering, nimble cornering and efficient climbing position. In short, it's more fun.
